CompNet members have published more than 50 papers both in the ECB’s Working Paper Series and in a number of peer-reviewed journals.

CompNet's purpose is to:

  • strengthen the analytical framework for assessing competitiveness
  • identify what drives the dynamics of competitiveness and productivity in EU countries and firms
  • relate competitiveness indicators with aggregate outcomes (e.g. exports, economic growth)

 

The ultimate objective of CompNet is to identify the structural factors that contribute to raising the economy’s long-term growth potential, by effectively linking instruments, mechanisms and outcomes. To do so, CompNet adopts an "holistic" approach analysing the micro, macro and cross-border dimension of the topic of competitiveness. The figure below summaries how these dimensions interact and how the affect the final economic outcome. 

CompNet research is organised in two meta-research streams, "Productivity growth drivers and resource allocation" and "International trade and global value chains". Please find below the detailed list of our publications.
